    How can I repeat the form that I have already submitted 

    Sometimes we need to edit a few fields and resubmit the current form without going over all the fields again.

    I am assuming you are referring to edit the submitted form.

    Please refer to the following walk through image to get the idea:

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

    If you have any further query, please let us know.

    It's not what I meant. 

    let's say we fill out the for A with 10 fields. now we need to fill out the form B which everything is the same with a different value only in one of the field.

    so what to do? is there any way to duplicate form A and then edit that particular field or we have to start over the empty form ( which is very time-consuming and not doable)

    thank you

    It's not a good solution since we don't know how many forms we need at the first step. Sometimes we need to enter 10 similar forms with minor differences sometimes even 2, 3. so there should be a way that not the previous value is gone after submitting the form (using cache value) or having a duplicate button if needed.

    I am afraid that we do not currently have an option to create a new submission from already submitted entry.

    I have added a feature request ticket to this thread and escalated it to our developers. There is no ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates.
